Gwent: The Witcher Card Game starts its closed beta for Android tomorrow March 10. This should be good news for Android users who have long wanted to try the game. The closed beta version will be on a first come, first served basis and those with a Google Play or GOG.com account can log in to the test for free.
Gwent is a turn-based card game that allows two players to compete in quick duels using a deck of at least twenty-five cards. While building the bridge is important, finding a good strategy on site can also be helpful.
Each deck a player has focuses on one faction. There are six in total. There are monsters, which are mainly motivated by their instincts and even consume theirs just to gain power. The Scoia’tael is the best when it comes to ambushes and traps. Nilfgaard, meanwhile, uses both diplomacy and subterfuge. The other factions are the Skellige and their warriors, the northern kingdoms, which boast of having engines of war, and finally the Syndicate, which is ready to do anything for the room.
With each faction offering different styles of play, this will certainly lead to interesting matches.
Developed by CD Projekt Red, Gwent: The Witcher Card Game is a free game to play without any conditions. If the title seems familiar to you, it is based on the card game The witcher novels and that of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt video game.
Gwent was first released on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2018. It then received an iOS version in October 2019. You can read more about the launch of iOS here.
For the next closed beta, those who will have the chance to participate will be able to discover all the modes and functionalities of the full version of the game. In addition, any progress made during the beta version will be carried over to the full version of Android. The progress made during the beta version will also be reported on the PC and iOS versions which are also linked to the same account. However, this seems to be limited to those who have a GOG.com account and used it to log in to the beta version.
The Android version is expected to be officially launched on March 24.
